I realize that for some this whole Woman Crush Wednesday means something all together different than how I interpret it. But to each his/her own. For me this day is a chance to shine the light on a female chef creating some fabulousness in the culinary world. The truth is that even having to say “female” chef is indicative of the fact that when you hear the word chef you think of a man.

I am excited to announce the 88th Woman Crush Wednesday honoree is the gorgeous gourmet gal Tess Ward!

But luckily today I had just enough energy to bake a banana loaf. And I decided to make it a “free from” variety. No sugar, eggs or dairy. Now it still has gluten, but there’s a reason why!

It is no secret our family has a love affair with donuts! I mean who doesn’t? We scour the globe getting them everywhere we can to compare and contrast. I’ve taken my Snapchat friends on several Foodie Fieldtrip Friday outings to donut shops. I gave Snapchat headquarters custom donuts that spelled out Snapchat! I even dressed as a donut for Halloween this year! While the majority in our family prefer the “cake” variety, there are others in the “yeast” donut camp.
